Outfit of the day: Kimono

I wasn’t going to do an outfit post for this look but after prancing around my local park, my boyfriend Andrew ended up taking these lovely snaps which were too good not to post!

Kimono (here), White Jumper (here), White Skirt (here), Backpack (here), Wedges (here).

I’ve never owned a kimono before but this is ridiculously comfortable and also colourful (I’ve been trying to be less ‘monochrome’ and more ‘colour’ recently) and so I couldn’t resist.  I paired it with a white jumper, white skirt with crochet detailing on the bottom, my new favourite wedges and backpack – all from New Look.

Also – I’ve never realised how versatile Kimonos are – this looks just as good teamed with black jeans and a plain tee, as well as over dresses.  Thanks again to my gorgeous boyf for taking these (you can check him out o’er here).

Do you like kimonos?  How do you style yours?

    Gorgeous outfit! I don't actually own a kimono but I will definitely be investing in one for this summer, amazing to throw over outfits instead of a cardi as it gets warmer. And that skirt is so cute I'm definitely adding it to my wishlist! xx

    I love kimonos! I have one from New Look too and it has a really cool aztec style print. I think they're fab for throwing on over plain outfits, they really add something special to an outfit! Also they're so light, they'll be brilliant for over the summer months x

    I love your skirt, I am a little bit obsessed with wearing white lacy shorts like that. I have never owned a kimono either, but this looks so pretty.

    I love this so much! I bought one last year but it's a "tropical print" and longline and I find it harder to style than this gorgeous floral one. I genuinely just bought everything in your post!

    I'm loving kimonos at the moment! I think they're so cute for spring and summer time. I can't wait to break them out for the new season!

    I love the way your kimono matches the floral pattern of the background, but at the same time keeps the blue/green contrast! Lovely pictures!

    I love the kimono trend for Summer! I have a white one and at first I didn't have a clue what to pair it with but I'm gradually finding different ways to style it and can't believe how versatile they actually are!
